Tennessee Retina Physicians

Dr. Trent Wallace is a native of Knoxville, Tennessee, and as the son of two educators, he desired to be a doctor at an early age.  He received his undergraduate degree in Biomedical Engineering from Vanderbilt University.  After Vanderbilt, Dr. Wallace attended Emory University Medical School in Atlanta, Georgia and continued there for his residency in ophthalmology.  After his residency, he completed a two-year Vitreoretinal Fellowship at Wills Eye Hospital in Philadelphia.

Upon completion of his fellowship in Philadelphia in 1992, Dr. Wallace returned to Nashville as part of a group practice and joined Tennessee Retina in 2008.  He is a member of the American Medical Association and the American Academy of Ophthalmology.  Dr. Wallace has a passion for vision.  "Vision has such a great impact on the quality of our life.  Tennessee Retina offers us a great opportunity to provide state-of-the-art care throughout this region, says Wallace.
His clinical interests include retinal lesions, macular degeneration, diabetic eye disease and retinal detachment surgery.

Dr. Wallace and his wife enjoy playing sports with their three children, exercising, and gardening.

"I so appreciate this entire team - I've seen Drs Wallace and Schneider - couldn't have had better care for my retinal detachment. As a nurse, I love that I am asked to confirm my DOB with each encounter. It is clear this has been hard-wired into your workflow. Everyone is friendly and professional."
